Comanche County Medical Center’s Cardiac Rehabilitation program is a Physician supervised, nurse monitored, outpatient program for patients who have had coronary disease, heart surgery, or a qualifying event (heart attack, etc.).
A progressive exercise program is designed for each patient with goals to include:
- Increasing stamina and work capacity
- Lowering blood pressure
- Managing weight
- Lowering cholesterol
Patients wear a heart monitor so the cardiac rehab staff can safely monitor their progress throughout each session.
Education is provided during each session on life modification which includes subjects such as:
- Diet and Nutrition
- Stress reduction
- Smoking cessation
- and guidance for continued exercise after graduation from the program
Patients graduate from the program with enhanced strength and endurance as well as overall progress in health and wellness.

Maintenance Program: Following graduation from the Cardiac Rehab monitored program, a maintenance program is available. No heart monitor is used, but trained staff is available to support the patient, provide education on how to take pulse and blood pressure, and how to keep a record for personal use or for their Physician.
